SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY, in its third year in 2022, is an arts and cultural festival that brings together artists and community members for important exchanges about justice, equity, and resilience, celebrating all the diverse groups who call the Eastside of St. Paul their home.

The theme of this year’s event is RESILIENT GENERATIONS, centered around our Southeast Asian communities, and other displaced and underrepresented groups.  Visual artists, artisans, performers, poets, and storytellers – many of them Southeast Asian – will share their experiences of leaving their traditional lands behind, rebuilding their lives, and revitalizing their histories across generations in their diaspora home of Minnesota. will share how their communities have maintained their culture, language, and history yet, at the same time, are establishing a new identity and are shaping modern life and society in their new home. Celebrating Southeast Asian people, culture and history is especially important with the rise of anti-Asian violence and the need for #StopAsianHate.

Solidarity Street Gallery is an OPEN INVITATION TO EVERYONE, to experience the central section of Payne Avenue transform into lively, a family-friendly street fair that is fun, entertaining, educational, and uplifting for young and old.  Please join us and participate and be inspired by the art; take in a performance; partake in children and community activities; learn something new; make new friends; shop for artworks and crafts; and enjoy great Southeast Asian and other delicious foods!  Stand together in solidarity and gather in strength and resilience! As we collectively emerge from the pandemic, we remain grateful for the opportunity to come together and celebrate our diversity in unity!
